Located in a strip mall and very quaint inside, this place is like a hidden gem. I had the shrimp pasta and my husband had the steak with peppers, onions and potatoes. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable.

This is one of our regular dining spots that we go to when we want Italian. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. It is loud, as others have pointed out. We have always had good service. They do pack the people into the restaurant, so the tables are close together. Like most restaurants in SW Florida you... More

Very crowded and over priced the food was really just OK. Nothing memorable. The menu looks good but the entrees we had were overcooked and disappointing. Veal Marsala, so over done. Too bad.

La Fontanella is by far the best Italian restaurant in the Bonita/Naples area. We visited the restaurant recently and had an outstanding dinner. The service is outstanding and the specials are always the best. We dined with family and two of us had the Veal Saltombaca and it was perfect. The Ceasar Salad is always excellent as is the Carpaccio.... More

The food was very good. Service was excellent. The restaurant could get a little noisy. Prices were slightly high. I suggest if you order one of the specials you ask for the price. The special I ordered was $36 which was higher than most other items on the menu. Also, one of the items that was ordered was overcharged.

We went to this restaurant for the first time today on a Tuesday. Almost filled. Wonderful service. We had Mino, the owner's son who did a wonderful job describing the menu. Service was impeccable from everyone. Hubby had the the fresh pasta Bolenese which he loved and I the linguine pescatore which was fabulous. Large amts of calamari, mussels and... More

We arrived with our large group of 16 and, despite a reservation, we were directed to stand on the sidewalk outside the restaurant for 15+ minutes while they prepared for us (…they already knew we were coming…). The location is in a generic strip mall right off very-busy Rt 41. The atmosphere inside is average lacking much in the way... More

We eat here at least twice a month and have never had a bad meal. We have been with groups of 4, 6, 8 and 20. The food and service is always excellant. The owner's are friendly and usually remember your name. Moe, the owner, has found the best source of veal I have ever had. Every veal dish is... More

Becasue it is an oft revisited restaurant! Excellent food on three recent visits. Friendly service with one owner in the front of the house and another in the back. Nice "neighborhood" trattoria feel. We watched many guests being greetd by name by the hostess and waitstaff alike. Also wallet-friendly prices (unlike Angelina's). Definitely a go-to when in Bonita.

We made a weekend reservation (no coupon), and were seated promptly. The dining room was busy. We had been meaning to try this place for some time..so here we are. We had a glass of wine each. My sangiovese was mediocre at $9/glass. The menu features pasta and veal dishes from $20-$24. We had a linguini dish and a veal... More
